The University of New Mexico Staff Council is now accepting nominations for its annual Outstanding Supervisor Award. The deadline to nominate is Monday, Sept. 19 at 5 p.m.


Every year, the UNM Staff Council honors outstanding supervisors across campus for their impact, leadership and dedication. The Outstanding Supervisor Award recognizes supervisors who create work environments that facilitates work-life balance, professional development and effective leadership in support of the values and mission of the University. This year, recipients will again be honored with a plaque and a $1,000 cash award.

History of the Outstanding Supervisor Award
Seven years ago on April 21, 2015, Staff Council President, Renee Delgado-Riley, along with UNM President Bob Frank, Provost Chaouki Abdallah, and Chancellor Paul Roth, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) creating and funding a new Outstanding Supervisor Award between the UNM Staff Council and the Office of the President, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Chancellor for Health Sciences and Dean of the School of Medicine.

Three years ago, the UNM Staff Council renewed the MOU with the Office of the President, the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the Office of the Chancellor for Health Sciences, and gained further support for this award from the Office of the Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration. These offices financially support this award by each contributing $1,000 to the Staff Council Outstanding Supervisor account on an annual basis.  

Each year, between two and three recipients are honored with a plaque and a $1,000 cash award.
